This week I bring you a drink that tastes just like Code Red Mountain Dew. Seriously, that’s what it tastes like. Not that I’m complaining though.
1 1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Rose’s Grenadine Syrup
1/2 oz Rose’s Lime Juice
Top with Sprite/7-Up
Straight build ingredients in an iced tumbler.
~ The name’s Skyy, Skyy Vodka
Also be sure to stay tuned for this months special Valentine’s Day episode of the show coming this Wednesday (yeah it’s a week late, but I wanted it to line up with the holiday better). For that episode I’ll be making a drink called the Dream of Love, with a post to follow.
As the weather get’s colder I am reminded that my trusty cactus “Gonzalez” will need some shelter from the snow before too long. In previous years Gonzalez sat by the basement window which has since become the bar. This has become a problem. So with some clever reorganizing and cleaning up of some unnecessary clutter the bar is now in 2.0 mode!
In addition to the new set up I received some old/new glassware from my Grandpa. Most of them appear to be small versions of Cocktail, Coupe, and Sour Glasses, but once again I’m still just learning things. So with the cleaning off of a studio shelf I was able to make an easy access to the glassware.
Retro and Nerd Swag
So for the main update tomorrow I’ve got an original cocktail brewing. Guess what? It’s pumpkin season!
